Radegast whirl offers Citron and fight for hard work

26.5.2010 Radegast

“It is already a tradition that Radegast Whirl begins the summer in Beskydy. Wayward weather, a beautiful environment in the middle of the mountains, and a nontraditional program give the Whirl its exceptional atmosphere,” said Radegast brand manager Pavel Kmínek.

Music band Citron and revivals of Kabát, Team, and Horkýže slíže will perform at this year’s Radegast Whirl. Organizers didn’t forget about the Radegast Adrenalin Park, which features a cock fighting ring, a climbing wall, and many other activities. There will also be traditional crafts shows and a giant slide.

The best part of the Radegast Whirl is the final fight of the “Looking For a Guy For Hard Work” competition. The winner will work for three days in order to earn 100,000 Czech crowns for each day.

The program of Radegast Whirl starts at 1:00 pm. There will be well-chilled Radegast and lots of food. Entry is free.
